Are subdural hygromas the result of abusive head trauma? CT and MR imaging represent important tools for the diagnosis of abusive head trauma in living infants. In addition, in-depth understanding of the pathogenesis of subdural hygromas is increasingly required by neuroradiologists, pediatricians, and forensic physicians. Therefore, the current knowledge(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Although early identification of patients at risk for dysphagia is crucial in acute stroke care, predicting whether a particular patient is likely to have swallowing problems based on the brain scan is difficult because a comprehensive model of swallowing control is missing. In this study whether stroke location is associated with(More)
PURPOSE The increased T1 relaxation times at 3.0 Tesla lead to a reduced T1 contrast, requiring adaptation of imaging protocols for high magnetic fields. This prospective study assesses the performance of three techniques for T1-weighted imaging (T1w) at 3.0 T with regard to gray-white differentiation and contrast-to-noise-ratio (CNR). MATERIALS AND(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Our research focuses on interventional neuroradiology (stroke treatment including imaging methods) and general neuroimaging with an emphasis on functional MR imaging. Our aim was to determine the efficacy of revascularization (TIMI) of middle cerebral and/or carotid artery occlusion by means of mechanical recanalization techniques and(More)
PURPOSE Aim of this prospective study was to investigate the incidence of spontaneous cervical artery dissection (sCAD) and cerebral ischemia in patients with suspected sCAD by using a combined head-neck MR-imaging protocol. MATERIALS AND METHODS 51 consecutive patients (24 m, 27 f, mean age 39.5 years, range 18 - 55 yrs) admitted to our stroke unit with(More)
Endoscopic endonasal surgery on a 36-year-old man was complicated by perforation of the right internal carotid artery. The immediate, substantial haemorrhage was controlled by packing the sphenoid sinus. Intra-arterial angiography of the right internal carotid artery showed small irregularities proximal to the ophthalmic artery. A follow-up examination two(More)
The synchronous appearance of different inner ear pathologies with a nearly equivalent clinical manifestation such as Menière's disease and vestibular schwannoma is very rare but leads to a relevant dilemma concerning therapy options. MRI is the method of choice to detect intralabyrinthine tumors. Since endolymphatic hydrops is considered the morphological(More)
With great interest we read the letter by Drs Adamsbaum and Rey-Salmon concerning our article “Subdural Hygromas in Abusive Head Trauma: Pathogenesis, Diagnosis, and Forensic Implications.” We are very grateful for their interest in our work. Because during neuroimaging we frequently observe the concomitant occurrence of hyperand hypodense subdural(More)
